Adaptive Reuse

Experience With A New Purpose

As developable land in the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area becomes increasingly limited, more sites and structures are being repurposed with a new direction.

Achieving this successfully calls for a vision of what can be and a distinct ability to identify opportunities for salvaging elements of an existing structure so as to minimize new construction. Merritt has extensive experience in addressing the unique challenges inherent in an adaptive reuse project. We possess a special talent for bringing a customer’s vision to life, transforming obsolete structures into dynamic contemporary spaces.

Maximizing Value

From demolition to brownfields remediation to maintaining the integrity of historical architecture, Merritt has the expertise to identify sensitive issues and develop creative solutions that allow our customers to incorporate as much of an existing site and structure as possible to reduce expenditures and conserve resources.

These projects, which include renovating, upgrading and updating existing buildings, are also an excellent opportunity for forward-thinking businesses to showcase their commitment to making a positive impact on our region’s environment. Moreover, significant increases in the cost of construction materials and land prices can make an adaptive reuse project a smart economic decision. Merritt’s expertise helps businesses make the most of this win-win proposition.
